Double E Company Turns 50

Converting Industry Innovator Double E Reaches a Milestone

The Double E Company LLC celebrates its 50th year in business in 2022. Over this past half-century, Double E has emerged as one of the most trusted sources of high-performance web handling equipment for the global web converting, labeling, and packaging industries.

Founded in 1972 by Ed Flagg in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, Double E quickly became recognized as an influential manufacturer in the industry. Double E products revolutionized converting and packaging standards world-wide. Fifty years later, the DF-2000 Torque-Activated Core Chuck, Ed Flagg’s patented invention, remains the gold standard in converting applications where challenges include lifting and centering the heaviest, widest rolls without speed limitations. In the early part of this century, Double E’s pioneering work with Lightweight Carbon Fiber Shafts advanced converting technology and improved performance, ergonomics and safety on production lines around the world. Today, Double E continues its legacy of innovation with patented products like ShaftSafe®, an air shaft pressure monitoring system that maximizes core shaft uptime, and the CFCP-1000 Core Plug, the world’s only carbon fiber-based core plug.

Double E CEO Thomas Pranka stated, “Ed Flagg named the Company ‘Double E,’ as the term stood for ‘Engineering Excellence,” a theme our team members strive every day to emulate as they solve customer’s challenges around the globe. We are proud of our legacy and excited about our amazing prospects over our next fifty years.”

Building on its history of product innovations, the Double E Family of Converting Industry Specialists has also grown via strategic acquisitions centered in and around the web, so our direct sales force can deliver customers a full spectrum of mission-critical converting products and web-centric material handling solutions. Recent additions include Appleton Manufacturing and its core cutters, RollMovers and Butt Roll Slabbers; Convertech Inc and its lightweight, narrow-web air shafts; Schlumpf Inc. and its Heavy-Duty Core Chucks, Roll Lifting and Roll Handling Equipment; and Epoch Rollers with its Carbon Fiber Roller technology.
